HTC Ville: New T-Mobile release hints

By Updated on

It has been a while since we last heard anything regarding the HTC Ville, but we’re pleased to say that we now have some fresh details to give you. The device could now be heading to T-Mobile and it could be T-Mobile’s first taste of Ice Cream Sandwich.

The last we heard of this mysterious handset was with an initial run-through of specs as well an image which was thought to be the first glance of how the HTC Ville will end up looking. We said at the time that the Ville name was just a codename, but it’s now January 2012 and we still see the Ville tag associated with the device.

So on to the update we have for you and it reveals that T-Mobile could add the HTC Ville to their 2012 lineup after an alleged roadmap revealing dates was obtained by TmoNews. Unfortunately the dates do not specifically mention the Ville but Pocketnow are on good authority that its coming to T-Mobile, and possible dates for its arrival could be February 15th or March 31st.

It is also worth mentioning about the HTC Zeta and HTC Edge, two quad-core powered smartphones that are thought to be coming soon. Both may well make an appearance at the upcoming Mobile World Congress in February so perhaps there may be a glimmer of hope that the March 31st date could apply to either the Zeta or Edge as well – that’s if T-Mobile aquire both handsets from HTC that is.

Back to the Ville though as it looks like it may be the handset out of the three to arrive first. What are your thoughts on the possibility of the device coming to T-Mobile? Just to remind you of specs, we’re looking at a dual-core 1.5Ghz processor, a 4.3-inch qHD display, an 8 megapixel camera and a thickness of 8mm.

Does it appeal to you, or is your focus firmly on a quad-core smartphone next?
